Beware the Batman comes to TV

It's that time again! Yep Batman has been absent from the TV spotlight since his.. let's admit major role in Young Justice and the Brave and the Bold being canned it's time for a new Batman animated show. Beware the Batman will be the newest Bat cartoon that will air on Cartoon Network.

The Caped Crusader will return to television screens this summer when Beware the Batman premieres on Cartoon Network Saturday, July 13 at 10 a.m. (ET/PT) as part of DC Nation. Featuring cutting-edge CGI visuals to match the intricate twists and turns of the narrative, Batman steps out of the shadows and into the spotlight for an entirely new generation of fans.

A cool, new take on the classic Dark Knight franchise, Beware the Batman incorporates Batman’s core characters with a rogues gallery of new villains not previously seen in animated form. Along with backup from ex-secret agent Alfred and lethal swordswoman Katana, the Dark Knight faces the twisted machinations of Gotham City’s criminal underworld led by the likes of Anarky, Professor Pyg, Mister Toad and Magpie. Produced by Warner Bros. 

Animation (WBA), this action-packed detective thriller deftly redefines what we have come to know as a “Batman show.” WBA’s Sam Register serves as executive producer, with Glen Murakami (Batman Beyond) and Mitch Watson (Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc.) producing.

Starring Anthony Ruivivar (Banshee) as Batman/Bruce Wayne, Beware The Batman boasts a stellar voice cast with:

JB Blanc (The Count of Monte Cristo) as Alfred 
Sumalee Montano (ER) as Katana. 

Villains voices will include
Wallace Langham (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation) as Anarky 

Grey DeLisle (Green Lantern: The Animated Series) as Magpie 
Udo Kier (Scooby-Doo! Mystery Inc.) as Mr. Toad 
Lance Reddick (Fringe) as Ra’s al Ghul 
Brian George (The Big Bang Theory) as Professor Pyg.

Beware the Batman is the latest series based on characters from DC Comics to be added to DC Nation, Cartoon Network’s programming block on Saturday mornings. It will be followed by Teen Titans Go! at 10:30 a.m. and joined by all-new animated shorts.
